, including great britain, australia, canada, the netherlands, and israel, allow open service by lesbian and gay troops. we have no greater allies than great britain, australia, canada, and israel, and none of these countries, not one, reports morale or recruitment problems. at least nine of these countries have deployed their forces alongside american troops in operation iraqi freedom, and at least 12 of these nions are allowing open service and are currently fighting alongside u.s. troops in afghanistan. there's a cost involved in our current policy. according to a 2005 g.a.o. report, american taxpayers spend more than $30illion each year to train replacement for gay troops discharged under the don't ask, don't policy. the total costs reported since the statute was implemented, according to g.a.o., has been nearly $200 million and that doesn't count the administrative and legal costs associated with investigations and hearings. the military schooling of gay troops, such as pilot training and linguist training. we are losing highly-skilled troops to this policy. according to the g.a.o.,
tuesday looking at airline safety. the association represents 54,000 pilots in the u.s. and canada. members met in washington, d.c., to discuss safety screening technologies, pilot training, and security and safety challenges all cargo pilots face. one forum focused on recent cutbacks in pilot training programs. this is just under an hour and a half. >> captain chuck from denver, the united pilot, chairs the training group. chuck will moderate this panel titled training the professional airline pilot today and tomorrow. great pleasure, chuck. >> thank you for that introduction, linda, and thanks to you and captain kay forgiving the human factors training group an opportunity to speak to this very distinguished audience. i may be terribly biased, but i present to you a panel that represents to me some of the brightest minds on the subject of airline pilot training and professional itch. as we all know, in the last 18 months, the tenor in the air necessitated events that truly are out there advocating for a transportation system. safety values of the pilots it represents dictates tha
. they added those two in and canada against him. i can tell you in our visit to the beef connection. we were able to confirm that he is not the only person in louisiana who great -- who drinks that brand of vodka. the key fact that they rely on is a notation that someone at this table had two absoluts. they submitted that to use the they could throw it in the next for a refusal of a federal judge. -- recusal. the house suggests that such meals were intended to influence him and get him to help with bonds. they would get bonds. now they concede that he never set them too high or too low. they did not cite any bonds that were invalid. this guy did not even deserve one. after our deposition, the house had to concede this point. you will hear from both of them that they did not believe judge porteous was influenced by neil's or gifts in the bonds. there was an of beef for bonds. they have both testified that the judge regularly it rejected bond fund them and could not be bought. he will hear from the criminal court, mr. griffin, that he said any representation made by then the check out with the
until eight months ago. the construction worker from from canada, mass., and international students. >> i do not know the answer. they're working in the connecticut and that's what happens. you get a job and they bring in their own people. this is an issue that concerned me. immigration in this country is an issue that needs to be discussed in a very serious way. we had programs called guest worker programs. do you know what those are? if the company says we need a certain type of employee and we cannot talk -- cannot find that type of employee in the u.s., and we'd go to russia or someplace else or engineers or scientists. resorts use that for a variety of reasons. he will be shocked to know that some years ago from a year in the state of vermont, apparently we do not have people who can ski instructors. did you know that? we have no one here who knows anything about skis. therefore, correct me if i'm wrong, but we bring in people from all over the world to be ski instructors. is that correct?

. canada's oil sands are one of the world's largest deposits, about eight times current u.s. oil reserves. it is preferable for the u.s. to process and use these oil resources than alternative foreign markets. recognizing this, as i indicated before, our company is investing $2.2 billion here in our detroit refinery to enable us to process crude oil derived from canadian oil sands and to clean dress protection tools and other prada products that our consumers need. that project is the largest project going on in the state of michigan today. there is substantial opposition to importing this oil because its current intensity is slightly higher than that of most conventional oils. we are developing and implementing technology that can and will solve that problem. i use that point to transition to the file of the three key elements of an energy security strategy, which is the need for innovation and new technologies. as i stated earlier, technology and innovation are vitally important in increasing the supply of into, moderate demand, and protecting the environment. there is a tremendous amou
familiar with the canadian system? >> i am. i am not an expert on canada, but i am familiar with the system. the canadian system is different from ours. they are tightly regulated and have a highly concentrated banking system. they rely on a shorter term adjustable rate mortgage. it is possible to create a system similar to that. other countries have used the cover bond market as an approach. when you look at the international examples, it is important to look not just what is on the books but what also may be implicitly there. a number of companies with concentrated banking sectors were the does not appear to be a government guarantee involved has implicit backing for the financial institutions that we do not want to retreat. international examples can help, but we have to go a couple of layers deeper to know if that is the kind of system we want or not. >> is there any incentive for the private market to get back into this market given the fact that freddie and fannie are in existence and we are continuing this freeze where we are continuing to let them do what they were doing before the
